Abstract

The AA. explore the physical and social factors that combine to generate this susceptibility to earthquake and volcanic losses, with reference to one of the region's most highly exposed countries - Peru. They review some of the more significant developments in the understanding of these hazards and their impact in the country, the excellent progress that has been made on several fronts during the International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction (IDNDR 1990-2000), and the challenges that lie ahead in building on this work to produce a more inclusive and unified strategy of disaster mitigation
